Personal Injury Lawyer Newmarket
Carelessness and negligence on the part of others can turn an ordinary, everyday activity into a potentially dangerous, injury-causing accident. Even the most cautious drivers, traffic-obeying pedestrians, enthusiastic motorcycle and bicycle riders can be involved in an accident in Newmarket. Even members of the public-at-large can be involved in an accident: innocent by-standers can simply be a the wrong place at the wrong time and suffer injuries.
Newmarket is connected to Toronto by Highway 404; this corridor is always busy with daily commuters, truck traffic, and vacationers headed to cottage-country. Because of this, Canada’s 400-series highways are always susceptible to multi-car accidents and pile-ups: black ice and blowing snow in the winter and fog in low-lying areas when the barometric pressure drops in spring, summer, and especially the fall. This can create serious and even deadly car accidents and truck accidents.
Newmarket residents’ lives could be seriously disrupted, if not completely destroyed, due to someone else’s carelessness and negligence.
Trauma sufferers in Newmarket may experience a wide range of symptoms, from slight to severe. Accidents caused by another party’s negligence may even result in the victims’ early death, depending on the specific circumstances and events of the accident..
Hospitalization, time off work, rehabilitative therapy, and other costly medical treatments are common after an accident. Accident victims are frequently surprised to learn that not all rehabilitation is covered by OHIP. The following are some of the most common injuries:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Cuts and lacerations
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Strains and sprains
- Facial and dental injuries
- Soft tissue injuries (muscles, ligaments, tendons)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- And more
Accident victims may not realize that their injuries are long-term as a result of someone else’s negligence. An injury can have physical, psychological, emotional, and financial effects. Accident victims are frequently concerned about their own future prospects as well as the financial security of their families.
Serious consequences for Newmarket accident victims
An accident victim’s daily routine may be disrupted in many ways as a result of an injury. Depending on the circumstances of the occurrence and the degree of the victim’s injuries, injury-causing incidents can have long-term and even permanent consequences.
Even minor physical trauma might result in a wide spectrum of mental health issues. These issues may have a greater impact on the life of a seriously injured accident victim than physical illnesses in some situations.’
If injured accident victims suffer from mental health problems, their personal relationships, sense of self-worth, and professional obligations may be affected. Many accident victims experience debilitating mental health issues, including:
- Insomnia and/or other sleep disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Alcohol, prescription drug, and recreactional drug use disorder
- And more
Physical, emotional, and financial consequences of a Newmarket accident
If you were injured as a result of someone else’s negligence and carelessness, we believe the at-fault party should be held accountable and appropriately compensated. It’s the law in Canada.
If you are eligible to launch a lawsuit, the Newmarket personal injury lawyers at Verkhovets Law may be able to recover money for damages that you have already suffered as well as losses that you may suffer in the near future as a result of your injuries. Here are is the range of damages and expenses as a result of a car accident, truck accident, motorycycle accident, or bicycle accident:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
- Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
- Ambulance services
- Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
- Psychological counselling
- Housekeeping services
- Reduced future earning capability
- Lost wages due to missed work
- And possibly more
Typically, a serious car accident also has devastating financial consequences. There is nothing anyone can do to avoid being injured in an automobile accident (or a slip and fall, or a pedestrian accident). That’s the definition of an accident; unwelcome and unplanned.
A major car accident, on the other hand, might have catastrophic financial effects. There is nothing anyone can do to avoid getting hurt in a car accident, a slip and fall accident, or a pedestrian accident.
The financial consequences of a serious medical diagnosis are out-of-reach for most people. Accident victims may be compelled to make difficult decisions, struggle to make ends meet, and be anxious about their families’ future stability as a result of the accident.
This is particularly true for accident victims who are unable to work due to physical or mental health issues. Unemployment is a serious and unwelcome possibility for anyone in Newmarket who is unable to work as a result of another’s negligence.
It is a sad fact that, catastrophic injury victims will almost certainly have to live with the consequences of someone else’s actions for the rest of their lives. Accident victims who are incapacitated or paralyzed as a result of another party’s negligence or carelessness face serious difficulties. For example, simple tasks like going to the toilet, bathing, dressing, taking children to school, or walking the dog are now extremely difficult.

It’s also worth noting that our personal injury attorneys in Newmarket work on a contingency fee basis. Our Newmarket personal injury lawyers will not charge you anything unless and until your case is successful if you are entitled to sue the party who caused your injuries due to their negligence.
In Canada, the personal injury practice is designed so that personal injury law firms work on contingency, that is, they take as a fee a percentage of the award settlement with an insurance company or by court order. This is part of Canada’s access to justice system. Otherwise, personal injury victims would have to pay for all legal services upfront (for example, business law, employment law, wills and estates law services need to be paid upfront by clients)–something that very few Canadians can afford.
